An Open Letter to Vending Machines Everywhere.

Dear Vending Machine,

Why must you constantly tempt me?  You seem to follow me around everywhere at school.  I can't get away from you, wherever I go!  On top of that, you want to fatten me up.  Your gifts to me are always something like candy, chips, or soda.  Don't get me wrong, my love.  I love your salty, sweet, and refreshing treats.  I just don't know if this relationship is healthy for me anymore.  I mean, you take all of my money!  Don't you think you need to become more independent?  I cannot support you forever, you know.  I know you act like you love me, but I'm beginning to think that you only love me for my money.  Sometimes you don't even give me anything return for all my hard earned change.  Is it out of spite, my dear Vending Machine?  Maybe I will never know.  I just think it would be best if I severed my ties with you right now.  It will be best for both of us in the end.

Sappy Sammy's Status

Social networking:  I have written about this topic before.  It has become so popular the past couple of years, that it is becoming very hard to ignore.  It is so easy to share your feelings.  To be even more specific, it is very easy to share your negative feelings.

With that said, I realize that all of us complain at some point.  We cannot go through a life of only sunshines and rainbows.  However, there are certain things that we should learn to keep to ourselves - or at least not share with the entire world.

How many of you have Myspace, Facebook, or Twitter?  Now, let me ask you this:  How many of you have a Debbie Downer or a Sappy Sammy on your preferred social networking website?  You know the drill.  He or she is constantly updating his or her "status".  It always has to be about how much the said person's life sucks.  In response to the status, there are a million bajillion comments that go something like:

Awww, I'm sorry!  :(
What's wrong?  Text me.

Which gives said person the attention he or she desires.  Does nobody else find this incredibly annoying?  Sometimes I think I am the only one who even notices, but maybe not.  Maybe there are others out there that feel the same way I do.  How do you feel about the increase in social networking, sharing your thoughts online, and those Debbie Downers or Sappy Sammy's in your life?

What I Want

"We can't hide, we let go
We've got more than we know
My friends are a different breed
My friends are everything

Make this last, take it slow
We've got it all figured out for now
So let us live our lives without a doubt"

Songwriters:  Alexander Gaskarth, Robert Dawson, Zachary Merrick, Jack Barakat
Sung by:  All Time Low
Song:  Vegas

This is what I want
...more than anything.
This is what I want.
